This talk will explore the concepts and experiences of using configuration management in a highly disposable environment of ephemeral virtual machines. It will cover why an operations team may desire such an environment, the tools the presenter used to build one, and most importantly, the sorts of failures, accomplishments and considerations encountered during the journey.
Learning Objectives: 1: Learn about alternative needs environments. 2: Explore conventional and unconventional tools for problem-solving. 3: Understand feedback for disposable environments for security and development teams.
